My work: As an explorer of color, shape and texture/pattern, I infuse all of my artwork with consistency and excitement. My work in watercolor is not 'traditional' but rather it's color-charged with strong brushstrokes. This describes my acrylic paintings are, as well. My subject matter is subjective and occasionally near-abstract but there are always human or animal elements, even occasionally dipping into the primitive or, on the other end of an historical timeline, pop art.
I develop my art in a series that gives me a chance to explore subjects and treatments; this becomes more interesting and fun for my patrons and for the viewers of my work. Often there are stories behind the paintings that are easy to relate to, adding to the depth of the experience. This inquiry of my subject that invoke smiles, conversation, and often joy.
